STEAM is a modern method of teaching through experience, deduction, problem solving and translating these solutions into practice at the same time. Children from an early age experience various phenomena through fun, it is the most natural way for them to learn effectively. The combination of science, technology and humanities, such as art, makes the STEAM method allow children to perceive the taught subjects as a related whole.
STEAM departs from the traditional method of teaching focusing on theory and memorizing, in favour of experimenting with physical objects, working on dedicated software and communing with modern technology such as 3D printing, robotics or programming. This has a significant impact on a child’s ability to concentrate, commit, and thus acquire the knowledge.
Skills taught with the use of this methodology respond to the challenges of the modern world much better, preparing children for efficient functioning in adult life, also considering the future labor market.
A practical approach to teaching, creative problem solving, or the acquisition of forward-looking skills such as programming, 3D construction design, 3D printing and robotics are the key to modern education.
